You use incorrert path for bibtex files, use
this is the standard.

latex as well as bibtex searches for files in standard paths, like the one
above. If your files located in other places you have to set env.
variables (TEXINPUTS and BIBINPUTS). However setting env. variables is a
bit tricky. If one uses only terminal session it is enough to set
variables in apropriate RC files: bash uses ~/.bash_profile and
~/.bashrc depending on type of shell (login or not), for zsh see manual.
When run graphical session it depends what DE and DM are used. GNOME,
Unity launched by gdm or lightdm read user settings from ~/.profile
